LAS CRUCES, N.M. – A small plane crash near the Las Cruces International Airport injured two people Monday morning.

Las Cruces fire officials said they were alerted of the crash around 8 a.m.

Crews arrived to the western perimeter of the airfield and found a heavily damaged single engine plane with two injured passengers, officials said.

The victims were treated at the scene and one person was taken to University Medical Center in El Paso for treatment. The other victim declined transport, officials said.

Fire officials said there was no fire as a result of the crash, but crews used foam to mitigate a fuel leak.

The cause of the crash is not known at this time, and New Mexico State Police and the City of Las Cruces Airport Operations are investigating the incident.
